Changes made to two WWE Clash of Champions title matchesBy Joseph Currier | @josephcurrier | Dec 5, 2017 6:51 pm
WWE made changes to two already announced title matches for Clash of Champions on tonight's episode of SmackDown.
After Rusev & Aiden English defeated The New Day earlier in the night, it was announced that Rusev & English had been added to the tag title match for the pay-per-view. It will be The Usos defending against New Day, Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable, and Rusev & English in a fatal four-way match. The rules for the fatal four-way are that a member from each team will be in the ring at the same time and they can only tag their partner in.
Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya for the SmackDown Women's Championship is still scheduled, but it will now be a lumberjack match. That was set up in a backstage segment where Carmella, Lana, and Tamina were complaining about Charlotte vs. Natalya until they ended up arguing with The Riott Squad when Ruby Riott said she should be in the Women's title picture.
Randy Orton will be facing Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn in a tag team match at the PPV, with the storyline being that Orton will be teaming with a partner of his choosing.
Baron Corbin defending his United States Championship against Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler in a triple threat match and Jinder Mahal challenging for AJ Styles' WWE title are also set for Clash of Champions, which will take place in Boston on December 17th.
